Default 3.8L rebuild

I'm rebuilding a 3.8L. I would like to eventually put a supercharger or turbo on it. But for now just want to build the motor.
Is there a good place to get aftermarket parts?
A rebuild kit for Hpw and torque?
Nothing crazy! Just want some more power.
And be able to put a booster on it when I get one.

You won't get crazy gains without going with boost. ZZPerformance is one large vendor of 3800 parts. You need to define your ultimate goals, as different mods can be recommended for future turbocharged or supercharged applications.

Well, turbo can make a TON more power but the supercharger route is easier..

Id suggest turbo but then again you need more money also.. Top ends for l67 are not expensive..
